Do you get heartburn?
If yes, what gives you heartburn?
What do you do to get rid of the heartburn?
I just realized that I bought 'egg product' instead of heavy whipping cream. Unfortunately, I found this out AFTER adding it into the mix. Damn it. There goes my chocolate fudge cheesecake.
So...for those of you who had fake IDs or know people who did, was the age on them realistic or farfetched? If it is common to have a stupidly old age on there...why?? Did you ever get busted with it?
I'm sick of Houston (I've been here six months) and I want to go somewhere else (I don't like being in one place for too long). Of course, considering I'm still monetarily dependent on my parents, this isn't going to happen until I graduate from college and find myself a "real" job. But it's nice to dream. So tell me...if you were me, where would you go to just leave it all behind? It can be anywhere, anywhere in the world. Give me some ideas and maybe one day I'll build up the courage to actually leave.
2. What is your favorite Food Network show?
3. Who is your favorite Food Network personality?

5. Do you find yourself getting hungry watching Food Network, even if you've just eaten?
I see girls eveerywhere fangirling over gay men and freaking out because gay men are so hot. I just don't see it. I know what anal sex is like, it's not pleasant to watch. And boys kissing is just like any other couple kissing to me. Maybe I'm broken or something but I just don't see the obsession.
Could someone PLEASE explain this to me? The only reasons I've gotten so far is "it's hot" and that is entirely unhelpful.
from a breakup...
that you never got
any closure from]
1. WTF? More specifically, is this really the general idea of the celebrity types held dear by different groups of people? Frankly, I've not talked to any Americans who aren't sick of all the Anna Nicole Smith coverage.
2. The judge: Camera whore or tawdry by nature?
It's nothing new...
same job...3rd shift for 3 years (and before that I was a total night owl)
same/more sleep avg. 4-6 hr (truthfully NO it's not ever enough but the fact remains it's average and hasn't changed)
200-400mg Provigil (similar to amphetamine given to people with narcolepsy)
It doesn't matter what I do...come 230a-4a I find myself doin' the head Bob's. It drives me crazy!!! not to mention it's not a good idea considering my job (private duty nurse) And then like clock work come time for me to head home from work and actually SLEEP I'm wide awake...blah internal clock crap.
and before it's mentioned I recently nixed my caffeine addiction in the bud...there was no difference before or after.
Changing jobs is not an option (nor something I really wanna do at this time)
So why am I so sleepy now...and not when I need to be?
How can I/do you ward of the Bob's?
this has been bothering me for a while. i'd appreciate any insight!
(i know i can post this to other comms, but i'm morally opposed to linguaphiles and honestly can't be bothered to join any other ones. thought i'd give TQC a shot)
(I'm waiting for 9am, 4 hours from now, when Student Health will open and I can get my throat looked at. I can't sleep because it hurts so badly to swallow that, when I do, I wake up. Or I wake up choking in my own saliva. Attractive, huh?)
1. Do you prefer the unicorn or the pegasus?
2. How much do you love cute little furry animals on a scale from 1-10?

(yes it counts if you download, just name the cd your fav songs came from, but you have to pick one)

What would it take for you NOT to make up with your S/O?
A Thermos can keep cold things cold and hot things hot...but how do it know? HOW DO it know????
Was the dress/tux/whatever awful, or did you really like it?
( Collapse )
Whichever it is, that's what I've been on and off since Saturday afternoon and consistently since Tuesday night. I've also been extremely lightheaded and food turns my stomach.
I'm not pregnant. I've been taking ibuprofen for my head and it's done a little bit, Would you go to the doctor?
I hope you all slept better than I did.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced something like this in their sleep:
You get sweaty and hot, but you feel chills - cycles of chills and sweats throughout the night, and its so bad that it keeps you awake. These chills and sweats are simultaneous with your body "jerking" itself awake... its almost as if your body doesn't want you to sleep, so it makes you jerk and move random body parts. If you had your choice, you'd be laying perfectly still, sound asleep... but no, you keep having this urge to roll around, move your arms, move your legs, etc - all the while, sweating your ass off but youre still freezing.
Yes yes, I know... Dr. LJ to the rescue. I'm not asking for medical advice, I just want to know if anyone else experiences this BULLSHIT or knows what its called?

1b)If you're not American, when was the last time you heard a phrase starting Only in [insert your country here]... and what was it in reference to?
2. What's something that seems to only happen or to only be true in thequestionclub?
While we're at it...why is it people call it "brunch" when you eat between breakfast and lunch but we don't have terms like "linner" or "dunch" or any number of other things?
2. Have you ever been to the rock and roll hall of fame? Was it completely boring, or mildly thrilling in a 'look at Elvis' jacket hanging behind that plexiglass, wow' kind of way?
3. Top five albums to listen to while being skullfucked?
Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack to drop out of Presidental race.
As an Iowan, this doesn't suprise me. I mean, he's 4th in his own state.
Did you even know he was running?
If so, would you have voted for him?
My current one (as I have a set of pet peeves, but one that annoys me more than others) is my dryer door. I do a lot of laundry. I'm a stay-at-home mom of three boys, so I do about four loads per day. Our house is rather old; the laundry room and bathroom were added on to the original house. The laundry room is done so that it slopes (unintentional, I'm sure), and whenever I transfer the washing to the dryer it closes between handfuls. I prop it open with things, but said things get in my way. I've taken to using my knee, but it wrenches my back. It is such a small thing but it drives me batty. When you have to open a dryer five times in the course of two minutes it becomes a complete inconvenience.
So what things are driving you crazy lately?
Is that question worded wrong? Eh, you get the point.
yeah great, notify us only THREE FUCKINNG DAYS before uni starts. yeah people dont have schedules. we didn't figure out our time table to be most convenient. and now they just change it on us (so one of my friends now has to find an alternative class because he travels and cant make it on the days it is now on), not to mention that it probably clashes with other peoples classes.

3- Meat. I should just go vegetarian and be done with it, as often as I get ill.

5- Paper. Mmmm.

About 65% of my dreams have hamsters in them somehow. I either have a hamster farm, or I'm rescuing hamsters, or playing with a hamster.
Once, while on the freeway, I saw a man applying his clown makeup. Also, I've never understood why people would think it's a good idea to read and drive.
You have 30 minutes to answer 30 questions.
So I have a question for you educated-types:
Have you taken a Classical language? I am considering doing a minor in Classical Studies and I am wondering if this is realistic whatsoever. Unfortunately, I did not go to a highschool that offered Latin or Ancient Greek. Will this be a problem? Is it like other language courses where you're expected to know how to ask for apple juice beforehand?
I want to save myself the heartache if there's no hope for me to take this minor.
I was looking through one of the fashion communities I belong to, and I saw a comment by seaponies, I then came here to read up on some questions, and there they were! It was cool I guess.

I failed my driver's test (never take it in a standard transmission Element, it is one big blind spot on wheels) and found out my septum hole never closed up, even after almost a year of having it out (still 14gauge, too). I'm gonna start wearing my retainer again! :D

3. Did/Do you have any contaminated jars of peanut butter in your house? Did you return them? (FYI: If the number 2111 is imprinted on the lid, it could be contaminated.)
- I was using Peter Pan, but it's been recalled. Tonight I bought a jar of Skippy and it seems alright.
- I used to love chunky, but in the last year, I've grown fond of creamy.
- Yes, we had two jars: both opened and one was 2/3 of the way gone. I returned them at wal-mart and was given a cash refund.
(Mine= Married To The Sea and Natalie Dee)
I've got a '98 Ford Taurus. Lately (as in the last month or so), the interior lights haven't been working properly. When they're set to "Door" they're supposed to turn on when the doors open and turn off when the doors close. But they don't. On "Door" they just stay on all the time, just like if you turn it to "On."
The only other alternative is "Off," which kinda sucks, because then I have no lights when I get in my car.
In addition, the light over the pedals won't go off. This is a recent development (today), but I think it's happened once or twice in the past. (Fixed for now, by unscrewing the light bulb.)
So, if anyone has any idea:
1. Why is this happening?
2. How do I make it work again?
2. If you have a boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/whatev
3. Do you think your birth order has or had a big impact on the way you are today? What is your birth order?

5. What is a rule of English grammar that you can't keep straight or can't remember?
2. What is the kinkiest thing you've ever done?</i>
